    My hair started shedding this January. I took biotin and all the hair supplements and nothing worked. The doc told me to use Rogaine which I do not wish to do, yet. I notice there are a lot of young Asian women in my area with thinning hair. I could not strike up a conversation about their thinning hair. So I am taking a survey in the hopes that we can all find a pattern. I eat mostly chicken, fast-food and rarely out in the sun. I seldom exercise. I always work in an office. I have 30+ BMI. I have low iron and Vitamin D. But why would my hair suddenly fall out?

    There is an EPIDEMIC hair loss or hair thinning among Asian women. What causes it?

    Please respond so we can track down the cause.
